In Aqaba, Jordan, the CROSSDEV project, thanks to the active involvement of local partner JREDS – the Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan – took part to the 2022 Clean Up the World Campaign.

The Campaign’s activities, which included beach clean-ups, exhibitions, plays, competitions and much more, lasted one whole week and were launched by awareness lectures on cultural heritage and sustainability addressed by the CROSSDEV’s team to 21 Eco schools in the city of Aqaba, with the participation of more than 1,000 students.

Eventually, the overall campaign – at its 29th year of implementation – involved 2500+ people, 70 institutions, authorities, tourism actors, private and public businesses, students, and the general public allowing the CROSSDEV team to advocate about the value and the cultural and historical heritage of Aqaba’s surroundings and to focus its opening ceremony’s speech on the importance of promoting the less-known destinations of Aqaba to sustainable tourists while protecting its history and treasures.
